    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    haven't you heard? slavery ended 160 years ago. therefore, all has been well & equal since then.

    black oppression did not end with the Emancipation Proclamation.

    such a view is historical revisionism and pathetic.

    If you goal is to end racism all I have to say is unicorns are myth. Stop looking for one.

    While they do exist in the minority, the notion that Obama supporters as a whole support him based on race is just as silly as the idea that his opponents oppose him based on his race.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
